Former heavyweight king Mike Tyson and six-time world champ Roy Jones Jr. fought to a draw during Saturday's much-anticipated exhibition fight at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

However, the charity bout ended in controversy after Tyson dominated the eight-round fight but didn't see the results on the scorecards.

"I'm good with that. The crowd was happy with that," Tyson said after the bout, according to Lance Pugmire of The Athletic.

Tyson added: "Why nobody care about my ass? I haven't fought in 15 years. He stopped fighting three years ago."

Meanwhile, Jones acknowledged that he felt Tyson's power throughout the night's co-feature event.

"When he hits you, everything hurts," the 51-year-old Jones said. "I thought I did enough from the outside. The body shots took a toll."

Tyson, 54, hadn't participated in a professional boxing match since 2005. Both fighters were guaranteed $1 million from the bout, according to Marc Raimondi of ESPN.

Tyson said leading up to the fight that he would donate his purse to charity.

Rapper Snoop Dogg joined the broadcast at one point and had a few interesting takes:

Before the Tyson-Jones match, YouTuber Jake Paul made waves across social media when he knocked out former NBA star Nate Robinson in the second-last bout of the event.
